LONDON THEATRES RE-OPENING
On 16 March 2020 all London theatres were closed to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

Shows began re-opening in Autumn 2021, but just about every production has had to cancel individual performances or curtail runs because of illness among the casts. If you do plan on visiting the theatre, it will be wise to telephone on the day to confirm there will be a performance.

  Since the shut-down, several theatres around Britain have been putting past or current productions online and we are reviewing them.
And we're also taking the opportunity to rediscover classic productions of the past.

We encourage you to browse our reviews to see what is available to watch in your own home.

What we do
. . .
We offer authoritative, independent London theatre reviews. We cover London's West End, off-West End and fringe, and some theatre outside London, notably the annual Edinburgh Festival. We have a reputation for reliable evaluations, and if a show is bad, we'll say so. And therefore if we say it's good, you can believe us.


 

Our dedicated Off-West End, Family and Out Of London pages offer links to leading theatres in each category. We list upcoming shows and offer insiders' hints on saving money on tickets.

Whether you go to the theatre every evening or are planning a single night out, whether you already know what you like or want help choosing a show, Theatreguide.London's reviews of past and current London shows will help you decide what to see and what to skip! Click on one of the categories to the left to read our reviews of current London shows

Stay up to date . . .

Unlike other theatre cities, London doesn't have a defined 'season'. New plays open and old ones close every week throughout the year, so bookmark Theatreguide.London and
check back frequently.
